Hi I'm Marianna Jorgensen

I grew up in Houston, Texas. I love to be active and have a good laugh with those I love. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Living an active and healthy lifestyle has always been important to me. I grew up playing soccer, so that has been a major influence in my way of life. Soccer is one of my favorite hobbies, but it is also hard to keep up with because it has caused me a lot of injuries. Getting through injuries was always really difficult for me because I wanted to continue doing the activities I loved doing everyday. However, I had to learn how to listen to my body and have patience. I am studying Exercise Science in college right now with the hopes of becoming a Physical Therapist some day.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in the church, so the gospel has always been a big part of my life. It has been such a blessing to have a knowledge of the truths in the Book of Mormon. They have molded and strengthened my testimony, and given a solid foundation for how I live my life. Every time I read the Book of Mormon I feel the spirit so strongly and I find scriptures that uplift me. I know that it is true, and this has helped me to know that this church is true. I know that Heavenly Father loves each and every one of us, and that is why he has blessed us with prophets and with the Book of Mormon. He sent his son Jesus Christ out of love, and Jesus Christ gave his life out of love. That is why I love this church because everything is so personal and unique to what other people believe. I truly feel blessed to belong to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.

How I live my faith

Every month I do my visiting teaching, and I love to do it because I make strong friendships with the sisters I teach. Fulfilling my calling is really important to me. I like to think of it as being a personal act of love and devotion to my Heavenly Father. He has called us all to the work, and I do my best to serve him. I am also currently preparing to serve as a Missionary.
